    I love these dogs. They are fun, funny, loving and protective. They are incredible athletes; especially running and swimming. I have two poodles; Susie Lee and Anna Banana. Susie Lee plays water volleyball and usually wins.

    The Standard Poodle did not originate in France. It originated in Germany where it was bred as a hunting dog, a water retriever. That’s how the "poms" came about…to insulate the joints.

    We have an 8-yr old standard poodle. He is excellent with children, loves to tease and play, and he is very intelligent! Many people are not attracted to any poodle because when they look at pictures of them they have the show cut look, and are not cute like a new puppy, but most families do not cut like that. if you are looking for a dog, get a standard poodle! they are excellent guard dogs too!

    Being a handler and groomer of standard poodles, I just want to let the writer of this site know that standard poodles originated in Germany and it was the French who took the breed and bred them down to miniature and toy.

I am not trying to make anyone look dumb, just wanting to correct the site info.

    I have a 3 year old Black Standard Poodle. She is the best dog I ever had. She loves being groomed. She sits still for me for 2 or 3 hours when I give her a hair cut. She hoops in the tub when she’s asked. She loves to retrieve anything. I can’t throw it far enough. She rides in the car for hours and is always ready to go again. She has so much personality. She is always happy! She loves kids and plays well with other dogs. She demands a lot of attention but we love to give it. She is not for someone who is looking for a dog that doesn’t take much of their time. She doesn’t need much space so a small home works great for such a big dog. She likes to bark but wouldn’t hurt a fly. Standard Poodles are the best!

    I love this breed. Standard Poodles are so intelligent. They are agile, fun and loyal. They love to play and run. This poodle is wonderful with children and a great friend. Poodles don’t shed. What more could you want in a dog!

    We are so happy to be lucky enough to adopt a six year old stardard poodle (or she adopted us) three months ago. She has enriched our lives with her poise, beauty & intelligence. She is funny and really has a humorous nature. She makes an excellent guard. She is 70 lbs of love. For some reason she has bonded more to me, maybe because I picked her out of her circumstances. She never lets me leave her sight and behaves so well. I am so happy that she is in our lives and would recommend this gentle breed to anyone. I’m sooo lucky!
